The Reaching For Success Grants for 2016-2017

Grants fund creative educational initiatives that enhance or expand our District’s curriculum. Proposed initiatives should be consistent with District priorities and school improvement goals, as well as in line with the Foundation mission to support academic excellence and success for all students. Proposed projects may benefit an individual classroom, a specific grade-level, or an entire school. The maximum grant award is $3,000 – we encourage partnering with your local PTA or business community to allow for larger projects.
